Ban on Some NGOs in Russia Does Not Limit Access to Democratic Institutions

It took two decades for Russia and China to understand that "pro-democracy" and "human rights" organizations operating within their countries were subversive organizations funded by the US Department of State and a collection of private American foundations organized by Washington. The real purpose of these non-governmental organizations (NGOs) is to advance Washington's hegemony by destabilizing the two countries capable of resisting US hegemony.

Washington's Fifth Columns pulled off "color revolutions" in former Russian provinces, such as Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin and Ukraine, a Russian province for centuries.

But Washington's ability to put its Fifth Columns into the streets of Moscow had an effect on insouciant Americans and Europeans. Many Westerners today believe that Putin stole his election and is intent on using his office to rebuild the Soviet Empire and to crush the West. Not that crushing the West would be a difficult thing to do. The West has pretty much already crushed itself.

China, obsessed with becoming rich, has been an easy mark for Washington. The Rockefeller Foundation is supporting pro-American Chinese professors in the universities. US corporations operating in China create superfluous "boards" to which the relatives of the ruling political class are appointed and paid high "directors' fees." This compromises the loyalty of the Chinese ruling class.

Hoping to have compromised the Chinese ruling class with money, Washington then launched its Hong Kong NGOs in protests, hoping that the protests would spread into China and that the ruling class, bought with American money, would be slow to see the danger.

But as they say, all good things come to an end. The Saker reports that China finally has acted to protect itself from Washington's subversion. Russia, also, has acted in her defense, kicking out Washington's "National Endowment for Democracy."

We Americans need to be humble, not arrogant. We need to acknowledge that American living standards, except for the favored One Percent, are in long-term decline and have been for two decades. If life on earth is to continue, Americans need to understand that it is not Russia and China, any more than it was Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Assad, Yemen, Pakistan, and Somalia that are threats to the US. The threat to the US resides entirely in the crazed neoconservative ideology of Washington's hegemony over the world and over the American people.

This arrogant goal commits the US and its vassal states to nuclear war.

If the EU were an intelligent and independent government, the EU would absolutely forbid any member country from hosting a US anti-ballistic missile or any other military base anywhere close to Russia's borders.

The Eastern European lobby groups in Washington want revenge on the Soviet Union, an entity that is no longer with us. The hatred transmits to Russia. Russia has done nothing except to have failed to read the Wolfowitz Doctrine and to realize that Washington intends to rule the world, which requires prevailing over Russia and China.
